When you are stressed and challenged by hardships just smile through it as frowning won’t help in changing the situation
i sometimes think i’m too in love with alone.
who could i love more than this peace?

Daddy-by Nancy B. Brewer
When I used to say, speak up you are as good as they, You would just smile and say, let them have their way. When in my foolish youth, I so often disobeyed,
He would just smile and say, let her have her way. When summer passed and winter overcame. He was not afraid, never once did he say. When in the moonlight his final hour came, He just smiled and said Lord I’ll go your way.
This year has taught me the simple craft of belief. I believe in the things I’ve nurtured and built this year. Slowly but carefully. Such as understanding, knowledge, passion, strength; the hundreds of songs I’ve written, the 365 poems, the books I’ve read and the miles I’ve run. The resolution to breathe, to meditate, to not harm my mind or body even when I’ve felt like it.
“when I die, do not waste a minute mourning me. I may go, but I will leave behind all my thousand & one lives” – a bookmad girl never dies. –

She was a beautiful dreamer. The kind of girl, who kept her head in the clouds, loved above the stars and left regret beneath the earth she walked on.
So, the world happens twice–
once what we see it as;
second it legends itself
deep, the way it is.
